Happy Monday, friends! I wanted to share a running update today, complete with a giveaway for you guys (at the end!). Now that its drier and warmer, I’m running a lot more outside these days. I’m aiming for three outdoor runs each week, in addition to treadmill hills and sprints at Orangetheory three days each week. I sure do cherish my rest day!
Lucky for me, my running and training partner is back at it this season, finally recovered from a few nagging injuries (knocks loudly on wood). I am SO much more motivated to set my alarm and run at 6:30am on a Saturday when I know there is a friend waiting for me and a fun conversation on the other side of it. In fact, I can’t even remember the last time I ran with headphones. We usually do two weekday runs in our neighborhood – the perk of city life is that we both have great running routes right off our front door steps. And then on the weekends when we aren’t as pressed for time, we like to head to Greenlake for a longer run by the water.
